Abstract

Estimaverunt Indi: The Textual Tradition of an Anonymous Treatise on Geomancy This text, which, according to the first two words of its incipit is called Estimaverunt Indi (EI), is one the earliest extant Latin treatises on geomancy. It is translated from Arabic, and its author is unknown. The present article accounts for the manuscript transmission of the treatise, particularly addressing the problem of its explicit. On the basis of the tabula occurring on fol. 12v of the MS London, British Library, Harley 4166 – which is here transcribed for the first time – the contents of the different sections of the EI are illustrated. A critical edition of the prologue, based on the collation of all extant witness, is included in the appendix.
